New music from Gen F alum Empress Of is always a treat and today she proved this to be true even when she's performing another artist's song. In a collaboration with Rookie Magazine, Empress Of shared a cover of Katy Perry's 2008 hit "Hot N Cold." As she pointed out in her Rookie interview, this is Empress Of, aka Lorely Rodriguez’s first time singing a cover, which might explain why the track sounds so uniquely hers. Check out the song above and read Empress Of's full interview, in which she outlines her desire to collaborate with Azealia Banks, here.
